ANDRITZ To Supply A Highly Efficient Fluidized Bed Boiler For Biomass Power Plant In Japan

International technology group ANDRITZ has received an order from Toyo Engineering Corporation (TOYO), Japan, to deliver a PowerFluid Circulating Fluidized Bed boiler with flue gas cleaning system for a new biomass power plant to be built in Kamisu in the prefecture of Ibaraki, some 100 km to the east of Tokyo, Japan for Obayashi Kamisu Biomass Power Generation Corporation.

Start-up is scheduled in 2021.

The PowerFluid boiler to be supplied by ANDRITZ features lowest emissions, high efficiency and availability, and highest fuel flexibility. It forms an essential part of a high-efficiency biomass power plant for supply of green energy to the national grid. The biomass power plant fired with wood pellets as primary fuel will generate around 50 MWel of power. Thus, approximately 110,000 households can be supplied with clean energy from renewable sources.

The Kamisu project is the second order in a row for supply of an ANDRITZ PowerFluid Circulating Fluidized Bed boiler for the Japanese market, thus demonstrating ANDRITZ’s extensive know-how and recognized expertise in the biomass power boiler sector. ANDRITZ is one of the leading global suppliers of power boiler technologies and systems for generating steam and electricity from renewable and fossil fuels, with a large number of very successful references worldwide.
